Game two of the NBA Eastern Conference Finals goes down tonight in Milwaukee, and DJ O will provide the soundtrack.
O was born and raised in Milwaukee and is a 20-year veteran. When he’s not rocking sports or corporate events, he can be heard on the city’s only hip-hop and R&B station, V100.7.
We spoke with O about what it’s like DJing for the Bucks and asked him to share his playoffs playlist with us.
What song gets the players most hype?
J. Cole‘s “MIDDLE CHILD.” The guys got a chance to meet J. Cole right before the track dropped nationally. They built a cool relationship with the Dreamville camp. The bounce is real when that track drops.
Which player has the best taste in music?
Pat Connaughton. He likes a good mix of today’s music and throwback joints. Good balance. Anything from ’90s Snoop Dogg to T.I. to Travis Scott. But you can’t sleep on Giannis either. He likes everything from Afrobeats to ’90s hip-hop.
What’s the most surprising request you’ve received from a player?
Giannis requested the track “Notorious B.I.G.” by The Notorious B.I.G. I was only surprised because, at the time, he was only like four years old when the track came out, and he is foreign. Being that the track wasn’t one of Big’s bigger singles, I was surprised he knew about it.
